Notes: Near Fine, First Edition, oblong 8vo, 8 1/2" x 11." Glossy, white paper-covered boards with color illustration on front. Mustard-brown, blue, and black lettering to spine. Covers have slight rubbing and slightly bumped tips, else clean and intact. Pages pristine and intact. Replete with illustrations, mostly black-and-white with accents of color. 55 pp., including illustrations, Afterword, and mock Bibliography. Principally illustrations, this is a children's book that ties in with the _Alien_ franchise and the four-part comic book series, _Aliens: Harvest_. The book "breaks the fourth wall" as it is an actual book in reality and also exists in the _Alien_ universe. Author Jeff Prosser humorously masquerades as the fictional scientist, Stanislaw Mayakovsky, who created a cybernetic ant named Ari. Prosser (as Mayakovsky) presents his findings about Ari in the form of this children's book. Excerpt from Afterword: "In any event, the publication of _Cyberantics_ caused quite a stir. No reputable researcher had ever presented his findings in such as manner. Mayakovsky seemed to take the whole matter in stride. 'Who wants to read a journal when you can have fun?' he asked a reporter." Illustrations by Rick Geary.
